Are you looking for lawyers who deal with Effexor lawsuits?
In February 2012, a lawsuit was filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, for what is believed to be the first Effexor birth defect lawsuit, against the makers of the popular antidepressant drug.
The Ohio couple who filed the case alleges the link between Effexor and birth defects. Their baby daughter Adelaide died within days of birth from heart complications.
"The information that patients – especially women who are pregnant – receive about the medication that is prescribed to them is crucial," said Thomas Anapol, a Philadelphia-based attorney heavily focused in pharmaceutical and catastrophic injury civil litigation. "This SNRI (serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) drug was approved by the FDA in 1993, but the parties involved neglected to disclose the birth defect risks to physicians treating women of child-bearing age."
